CSIRO Conversations: Australia’s National AI Centre and the opportunity for business
22 March 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Artificial Intelligence is set to drive innovation across almost every industry sector. It’s no longer experimental but essential for business. From tracking the spread of COVID-19 to optimising our agricultural practices for better food production – AI is having a dramatic impact on the way we live and work.
Around the world, the pace of change is only set to increase with AI expected to contribute more than $20 trillion to the global economy by 2030. Australia has world-class expertise and is well positioned to take advantage and make a significant contribution to the global AI community.
As Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO is focused on exploring ways AI can help solve critical national challenges, while also driving a new dialogue around ways AI can make a meaningful difference to our industries, businesses and ultimately, all Australians.
As part of the Government’s AI Action Plan, Australia’s newly launched National Artificial Intelligence Centre is hosted by CSIRO and will work with partners across Australia to weave the national fabric for a responsible and inclusive AI, creating opportunities for every person, every business and the country. The National AI Centre will provide guidance for all sized businesses looking for talent, knowledge and tools to support their exploration and adoption of AI.
As part of our CSIRO Conversations event series, our first session for 2022 will bring together our new leaders of the National AI Centre, and key experts to discuss:
The opportunity for Australia and emerging global trends in AI
The role of the new National AI Centre, and ways it will work with industry
Next steps in fostering AI development and innovation in Australia
